one of my faaaaaaaaaaaaaavorite fave fave fave shows ever is frasier… so after i just finished my 3rd full rewatch, i decided to binge cheers. i’ve never watched it straight through, and i also wanted to see the roots of frasier crane’s character. i mean, of course i’ve watched cheers over the years (actually, my entire life…), but i guess i didn’t retain too much of the show’s full storyline into my memory for whatever reason.
i am currently in the 10th season, and still don’t LOVE it 😐 which is making me feel weird, bc it’s one of the most beloved sitcoms. i mean, it won TONS of nominations and awards over the years… i don’t get why i don’t love it. i don’t find it that funny. i mean there are some times where i really LOL, but it’s a rarity. i don’t think it’s bc of the time setting, like it doesn’t hold up or anything, bc i watch shows and movies from all different eras.
:: shrug ::
the characters that are super irritating to me, and i’m not attached to any of them like i get with other shows.
carla i love and hate 50% of the time equally, i do love sam (at least his humor, but he’s so unattractive to me… and the point of his character is that he’s this super handsome womanizer), diane and rebecca both make me want to murder them brutally – they act like complete hormonal/dramatic woman goons, coach (RIP) and woody are both so stupid and not funny, that they make me want to put an ice pick through my right eye, the bar regulars aren’t funny to me at all, and frasier was too stiff and really SUCKED in the beginning. i don’t know if frasier was or wasn’t meant to be a main character at first, but watching his growth was fascinating (bc of course, i’m biased). i would honestly say that he and lilith were my favorite characters on the show.
it’s funny watching this after knowing the ins and outs of frasier, bc you can see just how many references and story roots there are. it’s also kind of funny how many guest characters that were on cheers were also on frasier. they weren’t crossover characters, though.
also: the stage set for frasier was also built on top of cheers, so it’s like they basically didn’t even have to move. wikipedia says cheers ended in may of 1993, and frasier first aired in september of 1993. it was almost seamless once it ended.
i don’t think i’ll watch it again, and it’s reminding me of last summer when i was watching party of five. what an awful show… but i couldn’t stop watching it, lol. i hated almost every character and all of their actions. i figured because i watched it halfway, i was too invested to give up (?).
cheers: 2.5/5 S2 stars.
